Congratulations to Valerie P. ’21 for being our Athlete of the Week for February 22 - 28, 2021!
Valerie is a senior captain on our Varsity Girls Lacrosse team. Coach Lexi Ignac shared with us, “She has been training privately for years to master her craft and build a winning program at Canterbury. She has an almost perfect scoring record. Only missing one shot out of the seven goals she has scored this season. She has had five assists so far and averages six ground balls per game. Valerie is a versatile player that excels in any position. She even took a shot from her knees after she was tripped in our first game. Valerie will always give her all until the whistle blows. As a leader, she goes above and beyond for her team on and off the field. Her passion and desire to elevate the level of play at Canterbury is infectious. I can’t wait to watch her continue to grow as a player and our captain.” Great job, Valerie!
